Winemaker Notes

The Ritual Sauvignon Blanc is medium bodied, featuring a round, textural mouth feel with balanced acidity. Intense flavors of ripe tropical fruit mingle with hints of citrus in structured complexity from 5 months of French Oak aging. The experience ends with a long, smooth finish.

A delicate white with lots of mineral, flint and sliced apple character. Full to medium body, fresh acidity and a clean finish. Subtle and refined character to this.

A really fine Sauvignon Blanc, the 2013 Ritual shines from start to finish, a complete wine that is clearly varietal and super rewarding. I can think of few things better than a glass of this wine a dozen freshly shucked Kumamoto oysters at this very moment! Light clear color, faint straw; dried citrus, lemon peel aroma, a bit savory and fine; medium bodied, zippy, yet rewarding on the palate; dry, well balanced; bright citrus peel flavors, light hit of savor; medium to long finish, bright aftertaste. (Tasted: August 12, 2015, San Francisco, CA)

Ritual is Veramonte's top label from Casablanca and this wine is up to snuff. Grassy, green aromas of lettuce and tropical fruits set up a clean, medium-weight palate with grapefruit, gooseberry and lime flavors. A touch of bitter pyrazines rise up on the finish and dance with residual citrus notes and minerality.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2013 Ritual Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from the Gloria vineyard, their best vineyard in Casablanca. The whole clusters are pressed and the juice is fermented 50/50 in used oak barrels that are 5-6 years old used before for the Chardonnay and in egg-shaped concrete vats where the wine ages for eight months in contact with the lees, with battonage but using extreme care not to oxidize the wine with a technique they call fill-steel-fill. The wine has a pungent nose with an herbal side, aromas of gooseberries and an unctuous palate where you cannot detect the wood even after you know how the wine is produced. The oak offers subtleness in the texture. The palate has some lemongrass flavors, and overall the wine is tasty and precise, with very good acidity and balance. A great Sauvignon Blanc at great price that I could drink any day.

Ritual is a labor of love. It connects us to the land we farm, to healthy living soil, and to the daily rituals of artisanal winemaking. The estate is situated in the extreme eastern end of Chile’s Casablanca Valley, set against the dramatic sweeping beauty of the coastal range and heavily influenced by the cooling effects of the Pacific Ocean and Humboldt Current —ideal growing conditions for cool climate wines. Following organic practices, the winemaking team uses compost to feed the soils to promote a balanced and self-regulated ecosystem, cover cropping and seeding for revitalizing the soils and sheep to help mow the grass and act as a natural fertilizer. The vineyards are surrounded by 6000 acres of native forest, creating a balanced, biodiverse landscape for healthy vines to thrive alongside natural wildlife corridors and native vegetation. Winemaker Sofia Araya produces Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir, and the wines are aged in combinations of neutral oak, concrete eggs, and stainless-steel tanks.
